It was actually a sour experience for the firm who were looking to sign Ranbir Kapoor. They were hopeful that they would be able to sign the star. However, when they heard the price Ranbir was demanding, they were crestfallen. They hadn’t left with any choice at all. Almost reluctantly, they had to let go the Bollywood hero.
There is hardly any doubt that the popularity of Ranbir Kapoor is on the rise. After the success of Barfi, he scaled new heights. That is the reason the firm wanted to have him as the face of their products.
The story does not end here. According to Ranbir Kapoor, he had never been approached to have a deal. A source tells that there are many brand owners who want to sign Ranbir up. However, a deal never fail due to the monitory issues.
